Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

A vacuum elevator is the ultimate in home elevator luxury and functionality. Vacuum elevators are quiet, smooth-riding, and stylish, running in a transparent polycarbonate tube with aluminum framing. No pit, hoistway, or machine room is required. The cabin is lit with LED and has a built-in ventilation fan. Each installation can have up to four stops covering a total of up to 35 ft, with through-floor or balcony-mount landings.

Perhaps most importantly, a vacuum elevator features the ultimate free-fall protection: Barring some catastrophic damage to the tube, free-fall is physically limited by the pressurized air inside. There is also a mechanical emergency safety brake system. All PVE units are ASME 17.7 certified, and carry a 1 year warranty.
